Aggression doesn’t just cause rifts in your relationship with your cat, but can also lead to serious scratches, injuries and infection. Aggression is one of the most common problems cat owners face. Whether he is lashing out at you or other pets, your cat’s hostile behavior can cause serious injuries and even infection. Fortunately for owners of unfriendly felines, aggression can often be addressed by understanding the subtle signals your cat gives when he’s feeling threatened or anxious. Aggression comes in many forms but is generally defined as any harmful or threatening behavior directed toward another animal or person. In the wild, nearly all animals display aggression when protecting their territory, family, or themselves from an attack. In the case of your cat, this behavior can range from hissing and hiding to outright attacks on a perceived antagonist. Understanding your cat’s body language is key to communicating well with your pet and avoiding such attacks. When your cat is on the offense and prepared to attack, he will display several clear signs of aggression. These include a stiffened stance, pricked ears, narrowed pupils, fur standing on the edge, and a direct stare. Cats at risk of acting aggressively may also growl or move directly toward their opponent. When felines are feeling timid or defensive, however, they may tuck their heads, wraps their tails around their bodies, turn sideways to avoid directly facing their opponent, flatten their ears, or hiss. It’s important to recognize these signals, as they’re your pet’s way of saying: “Back off!” Rather than provoking him further by trying to touch, comfort, or punish your pet, simply give Kitty some space to recuperate as soon as you notice any signs of aggression. Once you recognize the signs of an agitated cat, you can begin evaluating what’s causing your pet’s hostile behavior. Take note of who he directs his aggression toward and the circumstances under which this happens. It’s also important to understand what occurred in the time leading up to your pet’s aggressive outburst and what was about to happen to your pet when he acted out. By understanding the cause of aggressive behavior, you can begin to address the problem with the help of a qualified animal behaviorist. It’s important to seek the help of a professional, as aggressive behavior in cats can be a dangerous and complex problem to address. In some cases, aggression in cats can also be caused by medical conditions such as epilepsy, arthritis, and dental disease. If your pet is displaying seemingly unwarranted aggression, take him to the veterinarian for an exam to rule out any physical causes behind this behavior.

Quatro razões pelas quais seu cão se apoia nas pernas

From seeking affection to feeling anxious, dogs lean against their owners’ legs for many reasons. To figure out what your pet is trying to say with this behavior, context is key. Dogs are social creatures and a great deal of their communicating is done with body language—but not all canine communication is easy for humans to understand. Leaning against your leg can carry several meanings, depending on the context in which Fido decides to rest against you. Here are a few reasons your dog might be leaning on your leg:

 1. He feels anxious or scared: Pets prone to anxiety in certain situations often lean against their owners for support, both physical and emotional. If your dog is feeling uncomfortable, leaning against your leg is a sign he feels safe around his human and is seeking you for security.

 2. He wants something: Dogs learn fast that invading our physical space is a great way to get attention. Don’t be surprised if your pet leans against your leg when he’s craving your affection, a trip to the dog park, or a tasty treat—especially if you’ve rewarded the behavior with attention in the past.

 3. He wants to assert dominance: While not all canine behaviorists agree on this point, some theorize that dominant dogs lean on their owners to assert authority. Watch for other assertive behaviors from your pet, as well as his interaction with other dogs, to determine if this may be the case with your companion. While leaning against his human’s leg can be a sign of affection, testing his weight against other dogs may mean your pet is sizing himself up against potential rivals. If his leg leaning is not accompanied by any of these behaviors, however, chances are your pet isn’t trying to take your position as pack leader.

 4. He wants to be close to you: In all the above examples, your pet is leaning on you because he wants to be close to you for a reason. However, in some cases, Fido really is leaning against your leg just to be closer to you. Dogs enjoy physical contact with their beloved humans and, especially in larger breeds, leaning is one way to get closer to the people they love. Sometimes, we all need a little reassuring affection.

 As a general rule, leaning is a normal behavior in dogs. However, if Fido’s need for human contact is overwhelming, try ignoring him every time he leans against your leg. By rewarding him with attention only after he moves his body from your leg, you can reinforce mutually beneficial behavior. If, however, you think your dog is craving contact due to separation anxiety, talk to your veterinarian about seeing an animal behaviorist for help.

Anytime your cat stops eating is cause for concern. Here are a few tips to help diagnose the cause of Kitty’s poor appetite. Cats are capricious by nature and there are numerous reasons why your furry friend might refuse to eat. While some are serious and potentially life threatening, others can be harmless hitches to Kitty’s daily schedule. To get your pet back in balance and address any potential threats to his health, you must first to understand what’s driving his decreased appetite. The first step to solving your cat’s loss of appetite is to rule out any issues with the food itself. Ask yourself whether you’ve switched brands recently or moved your pet’s food bowl to a new location. Cats sometime refuse to eat when their dishes are too dirty or too close together in multi-cat households, so be sure to make your pet’s feeding station inviting if he’s refusing to eat. Other issues that can affect your cat’s appetite include feeding him food that’s past its expiration date or newly opened food from a defective batch. Try tempting your cat with canned meat that has been warmed to body temperature to see if he’s simply refusing to eat due to the quality of his cuisine. If none of these tactics triumph over Kitty’s hunger strike, it’s time to take him to the veterinarian. A physical examination can help your vet diagnose the cause of your cat’s poor appetite. Be sure to note how long he’s refused to eat and make an appointment as soon as possible if your pet has been fasting for two or more days. One common physical ailment that prevents pets from eating properly is indigestion, which can be caused by eating something difficult to digest or even a hairball. Feeding your pet too many treats can also upset his stomach, so be sure to avoid overindulging Kitty. More serious physical ailments causing loss of appetite include toothaches, abscesses, tapeworms, infections, complications from diabetes, and some types of cancer. Kidney failure is another a common concern in pets that are refusing to eat—especially if they are older cats. An unexpected pregnancy can also lead to a pet’s hungry strike, so be sure to your vet marks this off the list for female cats. In addition, there are some cases where a mental, rather than physical, ailment can cause Kitty to stop eating. Try to minimize stress and anxiety by limited changes in your pet’s environment, and give him plenty of affection plus a daily dose of playtime to boost his mood and reduce separation anxiety. It’s important to note that cats’ bodies are designed to eat many small meals eat day to match their hunting lifestyle in the wild. Without these meals, your cat’s body will eventually start sending fat from its stores to the liver, where it is metabolized to produce energy. If this continues, fat can overwhelm the liver’s ability to process it, which can caused a condition known as called hepatic lipidosis that can be fatal if not corrected. For these reasons, it’s important to get to the bottom of your pet’s loss of appetite promptly to ensure he lives a long and healthy life.
